hnic: shoot, hockey scores

“Hockey Night in Canada” (HNIC), a Canadian cultural mainstay akin to “Monday Night Football”,  lost rights to its theme song of nearly 30 years in a recent copyright/songwriter spat.  It was a big deal; think, MNF’s theme song.

Song-less, HNIC’s solution to this problem was to turn to the great masses, hosting an online anthem contest, promising $100k to the winner, with rights and royalties.    Do you see where this is going, friends?   Here is the top-rated anthem, courtesy of our friends at the Something Awful forums.  Please, everyone, teh internets is not for democracy.
